Hydrofluoroether Market Growth, Analysis, Regions and Type from 2019-2027

Posted by Preet on February 7th, 2020

According to a recent report by Fact.MR, hydrofluoroether sales are estimated to surpass 6300 tons in 2019, and register a Y-o-Y growth at approximately 12% over 2018. One of the key factors impacting growth of the hydrofluoroether market is stringent government regulations that mandate the replacement of chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons with cleaner alternatives.

The study finds that widespread adoption of the chemical as a solvent in precision cleaning applications is expected to emerge as a vital revenue pocket for the hydrofluoroether industry. Key attributes of hydrofluoroethers, such as non-inflammability, chemical inertness, non-corrosiveness, and low toxicity have been leading their adoption in the cleaning of semiconductors and other electronic components. Additionally, recyclability of hydrofluoroethers using water washing or phase separation processes is making them a desirable compound for cleaning of electric components.

The detailed assessments focus on, inter alia, on the regulatory and macroeconomic frameworks, prevailing pricing structure, imminent investment pockets, and emerging application areas. Taking the analysis further, the study helps readers get a better understanding of the trends characteristics of the emerging markets, including government regulations crucial to growth of such markets. Shares of major regional markets are also presented in the analysis.

It also covers recent moves such as partnerships and collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, diversification and research investments, of each prominent player. The key factors that shape the entry barrier and intensity of competition in the hydrofluoroether market are presented in the analysis. Further, the study provides PESTLE analyses of numerous players and an evaluation of how the competitive landscape will evolve over the forecast period.

Gains Remain Complemented by Increasing Electric Vehicle PARC

Non-inflammability, low surface tension, low viscosity, and a high flash point of hydrofluoroethers are propelling their adoption as an electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries. With extended governmental support and increasing consumer interest in sustainable and socially ethical products, the demand for electric vehicles using lithium-ion batteries as a power source is on the rise.

Electric vehicle manufacturers are demanding high-energy density lithium-ion batteries in order to develop high-performance vehicles and gain a competitive edge in the market. With its chemical properties suitable for use as an electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries, hydrofluoroethers are providing battery manufacturers with an alternative for replacing the traditional electrolyte for the development of high-energy density batteries.

The global hydrofluoroether market report answers numerous pertinent questions, some of which are:

  • What are some of the latent areas of investments in the hydrofluoroether market?
  • Which region is expected to emerge as showing the most attractive growth rate during the forecast period and which factors will be crucial to its growth?
  • What trends are likely to change the status quo of the positions held by leading players of the hydrofluoroether market in the not-so-distant future?
  • Which product/service/technology segments holds game-changing potential to dramatically shape the competitive dynamic in the hydrofluoroether market?
  • What are the strategies adopted by top players to retain their stronghold in the hydrofluoroether market?
  • Which strategic moves will new entrants adopt to gain a strong foothold in the hydrofluoroether market?

Lax Regulations on Hydrofluoroether Emission Accountability to Favor Adoption

Stringent guidelines such as the Montreal Protocol and Kyoto Protocol on chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) emissions is prompting industries to replace the chemicals with eco-friendly alternatives. Consequentially, hydrofluoroethers with their properties resembling that of CFCs and HCFCs are expected to witness a surge in the demand. Additionally, regulations exempting industries from emission reporting of hydrofluoroethers is propelling their widespread adoption in aerosol formulations, industrial lubricant manufacturing, and as refrigerants.

Use of CFCs and HCFCs as refrigerants and in other applications has witnessed prohibitions over time, and hydrofluorocarbons and hydrofluoroethers are finding widespread adoption in industries. However, hydrofluorocarbons have been identified as a greenhouse gas in the Kyoto protocol and regulations are likely to force industries to limit the chemical’s usage in the foreseeable future.

Superior thermodynamic properties of hydrofluoroethers coupled with its cost-effectiveness is bolstering industries to invest in research to identify its potential use as a refrigerant. The virtual phasing out of CFCs and HCFCs by 2020 is also expected to potentially open new opportunities for hydrofluoroether’s use as a blowing agent in the production of plastic foam.
